The past 2 months have been the most productive days of development the project has ever seen. We brought on another developer, Philpax
, which sparked a development roar as the two of us pushed feature after feature, and squashed bug after bug.
We've been working on some major features and are nearing a feature freeze. What this means is that no more features will be implemented for 0.1, and our focus will turn exclusively to improving stability and squashing bugs.
The Lua API has grown extensively since the last test, and you can expect a much more engaging experience thanks to a feature we have decided to keep quiet until the test. We have replaced our rendering engine with the very popular UI framework, CEGUI. This has seen a dramatic improvement to framerates, and enables us to greatly improve the user interface.
We will be holding a test in the coming weeks, although it is likely there will be a much smaller test held earlier to members of our IRC channel to test specific areas with a lower player count.
Keep your ears and eyes poised on Twitter
as these are the channels we will be announcing the test through.Trix
